With his lethal skills and criminal connections, former British agent Quincy Radcliffe has fast become a key asset at the newly formed Stark Security. But Quincy isn’t the man he appears to be.

When the woman whose body he once worshipped and whose heart he broke pleads for his help, Quincy knows he must either turn his back on her or risk revealing his dark secrets to the one woman who can—and will—tear open his old wounds.

For years, struggling actress Eliza Tucker has tried to forget the decadent weeks she shared with Quincy Radcliffe. His smoldering good looks had drawn her in, while his British charm had enchanted her. But it was the wildness of his seduction and the ferocity of his passion that captured her. She’d given herself to him—and he’d shattered her like glass when he’d walked away.

Now, he’s the only person who can help find her missing sister. She’ll use him because she has too. She’ll pay any sensual price he demands. But she won’t fall for him again.

What a fantastic way to start a new series, if Shattered With You is anything to go by Stark Secuurty is going to be one hot successful series. A spin off in the Stark World with new characters to fall in love with and as always a plot that will captivate you with lots of twists and turns along the way. Quincy a swoon worthy British guy with his own share of secrets, a tortured soul who hides his past well is now working for Stark Security and the last person he expects to see when posing undercover is Eliza the girl he walked away from a few years ago. Eliza is also pretending to be someone else, she is at the event in the hope of finding her sister and Quincy and his team may be her only hope...... This book had me on the edge of my seat as I got lost in Quincy and Eliza’s story, it’s a book full of intrigue, it has twists and turns and it’s a true love story that will take you on a journey as two people actually find themselves whilst looking for others. Brilliant start to what certainly looks like another Stark World hit

Having read other books in the Stark world by J Kenner I jumped at the chance to read and review Shattered With You, which is the first book in her new series, Stark Security. This is Quincy Radcliffe and Eliza Tucker’s story and is a second chance at love story. At times the subject matter was not for the faint of heart and for some there may well be triggers. I really loved the characters of Quincy and Eliza; both been through so much unbearable pain and suffering and yet they have come through it, not unscathed but they survived. It was also great to see some familiar characters throughput the story and I was really cheering for Quincy and Eliza to re connect and get the happily ever after that they both so richly deserved. Eliza and her sister Emma have been through so much and I admired their strength and courage to overcome some a horrendous path and forge a future. To me Quincy and Eliza are two halves of a whole and are so well d=suited for one another that you cannot help but hope they can see it too. As things spice up and danger rears it’s head, neither of them can deny the sizzling chemistry that remains between them. Well written this was a fast paced suspenseful and sizzling story that had me engaged from start to the finish.

This the first book in a new series and it has started off with a bang. I was sucked right into this one.It's one that had me on the edge of my seat a little bit. These two characters have some much emotion and it draws in right of the reader. My heart couldn't help but bleed for these two. Their back stories just ripped my heart out, but seeing these two lost battered souls together is so beautiful. They bring a healing touch to each other though it's not going to be smooth sailing because in order to accept fate's second chance they need to be able to find forgiveness. This book has it all and the teaser at the end of this one for the next book has me eagerly awaiting it!

I always enjoy anything from J Kenner! Her characters are always the best. She makes it easy to fall in love with them! Her story’s the same. She makes reading fun, lovable and very enjoyable! What I mostly love is how she always incorporates her other characters into her books. This story is about Quince and Eliza. It’s super interesting. He works undercover, and after a mission gone wrong he finds himself keeping away from Eliza. But no matter how hard he wants to be in her life, for her protection he can’t. He finds himself fighting the Inevitable. Their story is super cute. It’s action packed mixed with sexiness. A great read!

The book starts in the present with our Stark Security Hero, Quincy, on a mission (a la James Bond-style) with his partner Denise. Meanwhile, our struggling actress heroine, Eliza, happens to be in the same hotel looking for clues to find her missing older sister. When they see each other, it's Eliza's memories that recount how they met several years ago, experienced a romantic relationship for several months, before Quincy walked out of her life without a word, leaving her with a devastated, shattered heart. She never knew Quincy's true profession so when she sees him after all this time, she is one pissed off cookie, trying not to blow her own charade at the high-end party. As it turns out, Eliza's goal to find her sister overlaps with Quincy and Stark Securities mission to find a missing princess. Although "forced" into working together to hopefully achieve their respective goals, Eliza continues to chip away at Quincy's resolve to reveal why he suddenly disappeared on her when it seemed they were mutually in love with one another. The story is told from a dual point of view so we're privy to Quincy's inner turmoil and Eliza's frustration and determination to find out what went wrong with them so she can finally move forward. In spite of their respective resolve to not get involved with one another again, each for different reasons, their yin and yang chemistry continues to draw them together. As a wonderful aside, this book features cameos from Damien, Nikki, Jamie and Ryan!

A heartbreaking and suspenseful romance I’ve always wondered about Quincy’s backstory. He is close friends with Dallas Sykes and Damien Stark and so he’s been in almost all their stories. Quincy is one skilled operative who once worked, at the same time, with MI6 British Intelligence and Deliverance, a unique security group headed by Dallas Sykes with missions intent on rescuing children. It’s one of his downtime that he meets Eliza. As they spend time together they learn that each has broken past filled with trauma and heart-rending darkness. My heart ached for these two. For three blissful months, Eliza and Quincy fall passionately in love, but the unthinkable happens to Quincy and Eliza is left wondering why he never returns. Until she sees him four years later. J Kenner weaves an intense, and heart-stopping story that will take your breath away. It’s a story of two broken souls who get a second chance at love and soul healing. They are a perfect match for each other and I couldn’t be happier. Quince’s world of security is filled with action and danger, and the suspense is thrilling and the storyline is absolutely gripping.

~~He’d loved me. He’d cherished me. At least that’s what I thought. Because once he’d truly captured me—once I was so in love with him that it felt like I’d been filled with light—he shattered me completely. He left. Just up and walked away, taking my heart and my soul with him.~~ Eliza Lost love, second chances, hidden agendas, sex & secrets. Wow! This was an absolutely riveting rollercoaster of passion & intrigue. Years after disappearing from her life, sexy agent Quincy encounters his lost love Eliza while they are both undercover at a party. He’s trying to save a kidnapped girl while she’s trying to find her missing sister. In the blink of an eye their missions & lives become intertwined throwing them back together in a whirlwind of sexual tension & danger. Fabulous start to the Stark Security Series!

I can not get enough of this world and I love how Ms. Kenner continues to find ways to give us new characters so we can stay here longer. I just never get tired of it. Quincy and Eliza's story is a great second chance romance. There is heat and passion and such a great story! You won't want to put this book down. Quincy and Eliza meet again when they find out they are each covering the same case. The sparks fly as they look for Eliza's sister. There is action and romance and it will keep you turning the pages. Great read!

We have been waiting for Quincy's story and getting glimpses of him in many books and now we FINALLY get to find out what he is all about. Let me tell you we are not disappointed. We knew he was a complicated fellow but we were really in the dark on just how complicated. Deliverance has closed their doors (so to speak) and he has left MI6 and now works for Stark Industries newest endeavor SSA and while out on assignment to acquire a hard drive, he runs into Eliza, the one he left in London years ago but still loves, the only one he has ever loved. Eliza is posing as her sister, Emma, and she is at a party as a "sex slave" for the night and Quince, who is undercover, stakes a claim and slips her his key. Now they are attached and we are taken for a ride through the present looking for Emma, a princess, and sex trafficers and back through the past and what happened. Oh, what a tangled web it is and heart breaking what happened but questions are answered and hearts mended and through twists and turns and, yes, Damien and Nikki make an appearance too, we are treated to so much goodness! Definitely a good start to this trilogy. **Received this ARC for review**

I have been crushing on Quincy since way back when he was introduced as Dallas Syke's International Second Hand Man! We knew he had a past that was going to put us through the wringer. Alas, Quincy is now part of the Stark Security. I was ecstatic that we started the series with his story. Eliza was bold, brave, and amazing! These two had a lot of passion between each other. It was quite frustrating when they were fighting it tooth and nail. But that is what I need in a story! I need to feel it all. The Stark Universe is coming alive book by book. I have never found an author as unique as J. Kenner. She is building her Stark empire. I love all of the characters that become part of this world. This is huge folks! It all started with two people who loved each other with . The Universe has imploded to alpha males that are damaged and heroines that are equal. They fulfill a need that makes them as whole. Shatter With You is crisp and sensual. The feeling you get reading this book is exciting. You know Kenner will deliver a story that will be tattooed in you mind for years to come!

It’s finally Quincey’s turn!! I could not wait to get my hands on this story! If you read the Dallas and Jane books, you know Q has a very hidden and guarded back prepared because you finally find out what secrets he’s hiding!! This story has some major plot twists and covers all the things: secrets, espionage, kidnapping, royalty, steaminess, and so much more!! Bonus: we get snippets of other Stark couples: Nikki/Damien, Ryan/Jamie, Dallas/Jane.

Shattered With You is a fantastic start to the new Stark Security series. I was sucked in at page one of this action packed and suspenseful second chance romance! Quincy and Eliza are two outstanding characters and are absolutely great together. I didn't want the story to end and cannot wait for the next book! Highly recommend!

"I can't promise to save you from the darkness inside you - only you can do that. But there are shadows in your eyes, and I want to be the one to bring back some light." Ok, let's get something straight right now. Quincy? He's MINE, so back off ladies (or gents). He's been claimed!! Eliza Tucker shouldn't be here. But, she has to pull this off. Her sister is missing and she'll do whatever she has to in order to find her. She planned on putting her acting skills to work - pretending to be someone she's not to get the answers she needs. What she didn't plan on was him. Quincy Radcliffe. He destroyed her once - made her love him and then left without a word. And now he's standing in front of her. She'll soon learn that Quincy is not the man she fell in love with all those years ago. It's like she never really knew him at all. When it becomes clear that his latest mission and her missing sister are somehow connected, can they work together to bring everyone home safely? This may be the toughest thing she's ever done. Not because of the danger of losing her life, but the danger of losing her heart to this man. Again. Quincy Radcliffe just saw a ghost. A beautiful spirit from his past, who hates him. She should after what he did to her - how he left her. But, despite this fact, he needs her help and he'll convince her to do it. When it becomes clear that her reasons for showing up there, and his mission, are entangled in the same web of deceit and danger, their past will have to stay on the back burner. They need each other, like it or not. The success of this mission is his priority. After that, they're going to talk - and he's not letting her go again. She's his. She's always been his. Handsome -check. Muscles - check. Alpha? Oh my, YES!!! Quincy is the perfect book boyfriend, and as i mentioned earlier, he's all mine. Okay, okay, I'll share him with you. But, all I have to say, is Eliza is one lucky lady!! I can't wait for the next book in this series!!! Can you?

Nobody does a tortured hero like J. Kenner. At midnight I decided I was going to read the first chapter of Shattered With You and then go to bed. Instead it’s almost 6am and I’ve finished the book. Now second chance romance is my least favorite troupe, but Quince and Eliza’s story was beautifully written. I just wish Eliza would of made Quince work for it a little bit harder when he re entered her life. I loved Quince, he had that whole broody, tortured thing going on. Eliza was witty and had a good head on her shoulders. Together they fit perfectly, even if it took them a while to figure that out. If you are familiar with the Stark world then you will see many familiar faces.

J. Kenner’s Stark World is one setting that I’ll never get enough of due to its amazing stories and the couples who reside in this sensual, suspenseful, and seductive environment, and while Damian and Nikki will always be my favorite duo in the eclectic cast of characters involved in these multifaceted story lines, I love the fact that Kenner is introducing readers to the men and women who put their lives on the line as members of Stark’s newly assembled Security team - those who vow to protect and serve in any and all facets necessary. Readers of Kenner’s S.I.N. Trilogy met Quincy Radcliffe as a member of Dallas’ Deliverance team, and it was clear that his skillset and training were an asset to his team at MI6, with his Deliverance teammates, and now as a pivotal member of Damien Stark’s Security. But none of Quincy’s past experience or knowledge prepared him for Eliza Tucker and his desire and need to peel away her layers, claiming her as his own OR the fallout that would occur when a routine security detail turned into a life altering situation - one that left him nothing but ‘ragged edges and missing pieces’ and nowhere near worthy of a woman like Eliza. The fact that Shattered With You is a second chance romance is what drew me into the story line and made me want to understand exactly what happened to Quincy to make him stay away from the one woman who gave him everything…who surrendered to him in ways that allowed her to let down her walls and fill the hole inside her that she always thought would remain open…who now feels nothing but betrayed and hurt by the only man she’s ever trusted. Quincy and Eliza are brought back together in an extremely unusual way, and while it places them in a tenuous and dangerous situation, it also gives them, especially Eliza, the opportunity to put some of their fractured pieces together, feeling a bit more whole and perhaps even move forward without being completely shattered. But because of the circumstances surrounding their reunion, the truth of Quincy’s actual profession, as well as Quincy’s inability to see beyond his tortured past, their once inseparable connection seems to be completely destroyed, only further confusing Eliza and desperately wanting to unravel the secrets that Quincy refuses to dispense. Shattered With You is the perfect title for Quincy and Eliza’s story because it emphasizes just how much damage has been done to them at the hands of horrible people and consequently the actions taken by Quincy to keep Eliza away from his darkness and the monster within because she’s already been through enough and he won’t subject her to any more pain, even if that’s exactly what he did when he left her without even saying goodbye. I can’t wait for Broken With You, especially after how book one ended, which means I’m sure readers are in for another great romantic suspense in the Stark Security series. 4.5 Poison Apples

Shattered With You was a thrilling read! It was intriguing, intense, and sexy. There was a fantastic romantic suspense vibe happening, I loved that element of mystery and drama. It kept things exciting and I was hooked the entire time! Eliza and Quince were such great characters. They had the perfect combination of intensity and vulnerability to them. I loved learning about the battles they were fighting - figuratively and literally - and how it all played out. I really liked getting into both Quince and Eliza’s minds, truly understanding their struggles and what they were going through. The foreshadowing kept me turning the page like a mad woman because I couldn't wait to know what would happen next. There was a killer build as everything was discovered about their past and their complicated relationship together. This couple has an undeniable and complicated chemistry, I loved their push and pull as they fight their feelings. I love the Stark World J. Kenner has created and it was so great seeing characters from previous stories and how they played into this one. I’m really looking forward to Broken With You, book two in this series. After meeting one of the main characters in the story and the storyline that was set up, I’ll be counting down the days to release. This was an excellent series starter. I was filled with so much anticipation as everything developed. I love the timing of how all the secrets were discovered, I was on the edge of my seat. J. Kenner is an exceptional storyteller. The drama, tension, and heat were perfect. I also loved the emotion as these two broken and passionate people navigate their way back together in the midst of turmoil. It was a fantastic read! Complimentary copy received for honest review.

The moment she spies him crossing the room Eliza Tucker finds herself taken with him all over again, even though the last time they tangled with one another he left her heart in ruins. Quincy Radcliffe is just as gorgeous as he was back then, and as much as she wants to deny her attraction to him, she can't, because her traitorous body just won't let her. Her heart on the other hand has it's walls up and is ready to deflect his heated advances. She never expected to run into him again, she was only at the gala to find answers about her missing sister, but after a short conversation she soon learns they are after the same information. She knows he is the best at what he does, and she isn't so sure that she has the skill set it takes to find her sister, so they strike up a little deal. He'll help her, if she surrenders to him once again... it's a dangerous game to play, but she doesn't really have a choice! Shattered With You is a sultry little page turner that comes brimming with scorching passion, edge of your seat action, and heart-wrenching emotion. Amongst the pages of this one you will find a addictive story line, with emotionally charged words that'll rock your world. And two exquisitely crafted characters that will draw you in, bring life to the pages, and keep things consistently hot!! The fireworks were unreal between these two! Definitely one of my favorites from this author to date, I can't wait to see what she has in store for the men of Stark Security next!! Highly recommend! I requested an advanced copy of this title from the publisher, and I am leaving my honest and unbiased opinion.

4.5 stars--SHATTERED WITH YOU is the first instalment in J. Kenner’s contemporary, adult STARK SECURITY erotic, romance series, a spin-off from the author’s numerous Stark series. This is former British MI6 agent and security specialist Quincy Radcliffe, and American actress Eliza Tucker’s story line. Quincy Radcliffe was first introduced in DAMIEN, A Stark Saga novel. NOTE: Due to the graphic content and nature of the story line there may be some triggers for more sensitive readers. Told from first person perspective (Eliza Tucker), and third person (Quincy Radcliffe) SHATTERED WITH YOU, using present day and memories from the past, follows the second chance romance between former British MI6 agent and security specialist Quincy Radcliffe, and American actress Eliza Tucker. Five years earlier, Eliza Tucker, while on a working ‘vacation’ in England, met and fell in love with Quincy Radcliffe, a man she believed worked as an international financial consultant. Three months later our heroine’s heart would be destroyed when Quincy disappeared without so much as a goodbye. Fast forward to present day, wherein Eliza’s older sister Emma, a private eye and security specialist in her own right is missing, along with a young child, and Eliza is desperate to uncover her whereabouts and why. Pretending to be her own sister, Eliza goes undercover as a high price call-girl to gather information from someone who may or may not know where Emma has gone. Enter Quincy Radcliffe, the man who broke our heroine’s heart but a man looking for a missing child who may be in the custody of Eliza’s sister. What ensues is the tempestuous but rekindling romance between Eliza and Quincy, and the potential fall-out as Quincy is unable to let go of the past, a past that all but destroyed our story line hero. Quincy Radcliffe had never stopped loving our story line heroine but the life of a MI6 agent meant leaving and disappearing at the drop of a hat. When his assignment went all to h*ll, Quincy was unable to return to the woman who had stolen his heart, a woman who would struggle to move on with her life. Eliza and Quincy’s backstories are heart breaking and dark, heart break that continues into the present day. The relationship between Eliza and Quincy is a second chance romance between two people destroyed by childhood trauma, and adult pain. Quincy battles to move on from the past as Eliza continues to struggle with Quincy’s actions years before. The $ex scenes are intimate, passionate and intense. We are reintroduced to several characters from the author’s numerous Stark series including Nikki and Damien Stark, Jamie Archer and Ryan Hunter, Dallas Sykes, Orlando ‘Ollie’ McKee, Quincy’s partner Denise aka Denny; Emma’s business partner Lorenzo Tate, and his daughter Marissa. The requisite evil has many faces. Denny and Mason’s story is next in BROKEN WITH YOU. SHATTERED WITH YOU is a heart breaking and emotional story line. The premise is captivating and engaging: the characters are broken, spirited and animated; the romance is seductive and impassioned. SHATTERED WITH YOU is an energetic and revealing story of second chances and moving forward.

Sometimes your past can come back to haunt you, other times, well it could be a blessing in disguise. Quincy Radcliffe had a rough childhood and became a British Agent. Now, he is working with Stark Security on a very tough and important case. Eliza Tucker’s childhood wasn’t easy either. She is an actress who spent an amazing 6 months and met Quincy Radcliff literally by accident. Slowly, Quincy stole her heart, then ripped it out when he left. Now years later they are forced to work together, but can they? Let the sparks fly!! If you love the Stark Series, you will LOVE Stark Security!!! I loved every detail and I know you will too!!

Oh Quince, you sexy British badass, it's good to see you again. This enigma was deserving of his own epic romance and he got in spades with Eliza. When a mission goes bad and he has to break things off, neither one can get over it. Thankfully, a missing girl brings them together years later and they're given the chance to rekindle the romance. I loved the mystery at the heart of this and how Eliza relied on her past with her sister to help Quince and the team at SSA. It was great to watch her fight for Quince and then for him to fight right back for her. They truly deserve a happy ending after all that they've been through. I do wish we had a little bit more about their pasts. They share a horribly common past and it would have been good to see that unite them even more. Add in a few glimpses of our favorite fellas - Damian, Dallas, Ryan - and this book is a great kick off for the new Stark Security spin off series. Well done Kenner - I'm excited about what comes next!
